Jacquie Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Jacquie Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund (“JJMSF”) has been established to provide support for emerging and diverse content producers of non-fiction shorts, feature-length programs, web series, 360-VR, or podcasts. The Scholarship is inspired by the life and work of Jacquie Jones who dedicated her life to the development and growth of diverse content creators, and the creation of projects that serve the needs of all communities that encourage dialogue, nurture respect and promote understanding.

Through funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Black Public Media is administering $300,000 in grants for the development and production of multi-platform content projects for public media distribution from emerging and diverse media makers as part of its continued commitment to future generations of diverse storytellers. Projects will be funded in amounts ranging from $20,000 - $100,000, depending on the type of project, scope and phase of development/production. All topics are welcome.
